Answer a handful of questions and we automatically generate the right document set—complete with your business logic and process flows.

The Problem

CIOs, CPOs, and Agency leaders tell us that the single biggest bottleneck in procurement is developing documents. Today, producing complex solicitations has become very much a team sport. It is now common to have 10-50 subject matter experts contributing to a single solicitation. Managing the tasks assigned to contributors is a project management headache. The desktop applications procurement officials typically use do not allow for multiple people to work on the same document at the same time. Also a problem: identifying the exact language, attachments, and exhibits needed for compliance with contracting standards so as to reduce risk.

  • Version control is a nightmare when working with desktop applications and 10-50 contributors to each document
  • Staying up-to-date with regulatory changes is hard and takes extreme vigilance
  • Task management is way too hard
  • Compliance with contracting standards is not a given

Our Platform

Smarter Documents; Better Results

All documents created on our advanced platform for Document Process Automation™ come with built-in intelligence, to unlock data hidden inside your documents and turn it into structured data. Then we make that data available to the systems of record in use within your agency. From local to state and federal, we enable government agencies to optimize and streamline processes by 50-70%.

Document Builder

Document Builder replaces desktop applications with a modern, cloud-based system built from the ground up for government agencies tasked with acquiring urgently needed technology + non-IT goods and services. Perfect for remote work and collaboration, Document Builder makes it easy to manage the contributions of even the largest teams while saving time, ensuring compliance, and eliminating version control nightmares.

Evaluation Builder

Evaluation Builder replaces cumbersome evaluation workbooks with a modern, cloud-based system that allows evaluators to streamline and accelerate the entire evaluation process. Decisions are automatically captured and logged for greater transparency and security. Only City Innovate lets project managers create a form and set up evaluation criteria in one, simple step.


Analytics provides procurement, contract, grant, and budget teams with a single source of truth. Agencies can now track anticipated spending by category, subcategory, department, and more while easy-to-understand visual reporting provides insight into how a project is proceeding and identifies potential bottlenecks in the production process.


Our Document Process Automation™ platform can serve as the backbone of your system of record for procurement, contracts, or grants. With its flexible APIs, the platform easily integrates with existing software such as ServiceNow, PeopleSoft, or DocuSign. From federal to state to local, we enable government agencies to optimize current systems and streamline processes by as much as 70%. We improve the efficiency and effectiveness of processes that center around large documents including procurement, contracts, grants, and budgeting.
